The date, theme, and keynote speaker for School of Discipleship 2019 have been announced with Uniting Venues Naamaroo set to host the event once again.
School of Discipleship 2019 will run at Uniting Venues – Naamaroo Conference Centre from 28-30 June 2019 and you are invited to SAVE THE DATE, with registrations planned for 2019.
Rev. Dr Robyn Whittaker will be the keynote lectures, on the subject of Discipleship and the Book of Revelation.
She told Insights that her keynote lecture would deal with some popular misconceptions people have when it comes to Revelation.
“I plan to talk about the book of Revelation and particularly the way it portrays evil. Contrary to a lot of popular belief and misinformation about the apocalypse or end of the world (e.g. antichrist figures), Revelation offers a theology of evil that is corporate, systemic, and communal,” Rev. Dr Whittaker said.
“I think it is a profoundly relevant text for making sense of evil and injustice in the world. People can expect me to be academic in unpacking the text and locating it in its historic first century context, but I will also push them to think about the contemporary implications and what it might mean for ethical Christian living.”
School of Discipleship is an annual theological conference particularly aimed at tertiary students.
